Context is a wonderful thing. The World's Highest-Paid Athletes 2013: Behind The Numbers - Forbes

"Our earnings figures include all salaries and bonuses paid out between June 1, 2012 and June 1, 2013."

So let's see, during that period, Pacquiao fought twice (2012-06-09 vs Timothy Bradley & 2012-12-08 vs Juan Manuel Marquez) while Floyd fought once (2013-05-04 vs Robert Guerrero).

So two fights for Manny and one for Mayweather and they end up tied at #14. Well, that's pretty self-explanatory....

fine so Forbes says they each made 34 million but espn says manny made 52 million. not sure which is correct but i think it's safe to say they are both huge PPV draws and they each deserve an even share of the purse. each of them has a loyal fan base that will make this a record selling event.

There may very already be a record selling event on September 14....without Manny.
